Burnley boss Laws wanted more time to add to squad

Burnley boss Brian Laws admits he would have liked more time to bring in new players.

Laws has recruited Frederic Nimani, Leon Cort, Nicky Weaver, Danny Fox and Jack Cork over the last few days.

"Bringing in new players, everyone needs time to bed in, but we can't give them time unfortunately," Laws said.

"But that is where their experience will come in handy. They're not novices, they're not kids; they are players who have got games under their belts and they know the situation quite clearly, what's at stake here at the football club and they are going to be part of that drive and ambition to stay in the Premier League.

"They have to hit the ground running and while they do that, we will support them in every way we can to make sure that the transition is quite smooth."
